Recommended Posts

World champion boxing trainer Brendan Ingle has died aged 77.

 

The Dublin-born former boxer became a highly regarded trainer at his Sheffield-based Wincobank gym, and guided British fighters Johnny Nelson and Naseem Hamed to world titles.

 

"On this one occasion I am using social media to inform people a good, good man has left this earth today," Nelson wrote on Instagram on Friday.

Oh no...so sad. :'( Dean was a very talented fighter who never reached his maximum potential because of an arm injury when he was still in his early career phase. I wrote about it in my thread on him. RIP.

Rest in Peace, Brendan. Superb trainer who leaves a lasting legacy.

 

Rest in Peace, Dean. Won titles at English, British, Commonwealth & European levels. Has had a well documented battle with cancer. Was fortunate enough to cover his comeback, from ringside. Tremendous win over Justin Hugh.
